It’s possible that Calvin Harris had the brightest glow, but other celebrities are not far behind him.
The world’s richest DJ, who got engaged to 32-year-old Vic Hope this month, wasn’t always the gorgeous tanned hunk he is now.
When he rose to fame in 2007, 38-year-old Calvin was a pimply student with long dark-dyed hair who was often bullied for his height.
In fact, his fiancee actually turned him down when he first asked her out.
In 2018, Vic admitted during one of her Capital FM radio shows: “He looked like he used to, I was petite, I was 19 and I said no and either left Scouting For Girls or The Wombats, I do not do that. I thought they were going to be bigger, but no, it turns out Calvin Harris was going to turn into an Adonis.”
Here we take a look at other celebrities – from Kylie Jenner to George Clooney – who have gone from crazy kids to red carpet hotties.
Now known as Gorgeous George and the famous silver fox, George Clooney, 61, hasn’t always looked like he did in Hollywood.
In a photo from the school yearbook, the actor has glasses and a haircut that looks like he was literally cut with a bowl.
George is also wearing a questionable white polo-neck jumper, albeit very reminiscent of those times. This is a reminder to all of us that good looks come with age.
More celebrity transformations
Back in 2011, Kylie Jenner was a normal 14 year old with a whole bunch of typical teenage issues.
She appeared on the cover of Teen Vogue stating that she is “still developing her personal style” and that her favorite stores are Urban Outfitters and Bloomingdale’s.
These days, 24-year-old Kylie is not seen wearing designer brands like Balmain, Gucci and Dolce & Gabbana and her looks have changed dramatically.
While she has repeatedly denied rumors that she had breast implants or buttock injections, the makeup mogul admitted to using lip fillers in 2015.
She said, “I have temporary lip fillers, it’s just my insecurities and that’s what I wanted to do.”
Three years later in her E! She revealed on Life of Kylie that her insecurities stemmed from a tactless remark made by a boy.
“I was 15 and I wasn’t sure about my lips. I had very small lips,” Kylie shared. “It was one of my first kisses and one guy said, ‘I didn’t think you’d be a good kisser because your lips are so small.’
“When a guy you like says that, I don’t know, it just really affected me. I just didn’t feel wanted or beautiful.”
As a teenager, he played the wizard Neville Longbottom in Harry Potter, and Matthew Lewis’s transformation into a full-fledged handsome man was pretty magical.
The 32-year-old is often praised for how he has gone from geeky to gorgeous over the years.
And last year, he modestly admitted: “Probably, this is a compliment. I am very embarrassed by the nice things that people say.
“I don’t know what they’re talking about, to be honest. I suppose they could say much worse things!
She rose through the ranks and became one of the most famous models in the world, but Bella Hadid looked very different when she was younger.
And in a recent interview with Vogue, the 25-year-old admitted that she had nose surgery at the age of 14, which she now regrets.
“I wish I could keep the nose of my ancestors. I think I would grow up to him,” she said.
However, despite the rumors, she denies having had surgery anywhere else and insists that she has never even had fillers or Botox.
Instead, Bella believes that her change in appearance is due to “face taping”.
Ryan Gosling, 41, insists he “doesn’t look all that good” despite being admired by women (and men) all over the world.
“I think I look pretty weird,” Ryan, who is with the equally gorgeous Eva Mendes, said oddly.
However, anyone who has seen him topless in Madness, Stupidity, Love would disagree.
Maybe he just thinks of himself as the stupid guy he used to be!
He was named People magazine’s Sexiest Man of 2010, but Ryan Reynolds looked far from the movie star he is now in his teens.
The 45-year-old actor has been acting since he was 15 when he starred in the Nickelodeon movie Fifteen.
At the time he played Seth, who is in love with Sabrina, in the TV movie Sabrina the Teenage Witch, he wore bright blonde locks and a hoop earring.
As half of one of Hollywood’s most beautiful couples who always get it right at the Met Gala, Blake Lively will never see him dead like this!
Speaking of Blake, she too has gone through a lot of changes since her teenage years to become the goddess she is now.
Although she has always been pretty, the 34-year-old looked questionable on the red carpet.
One of her most memorable moments was when she wore low-rise ripped Abercrombie jeans, a babydoll top and a hot pink belt.
“I was still in high school,” Blake said. Fashion. “The turquoise t-shirt is what my mom found in Forever 21”
Since then, she has evolved into a style queen.
Julia Roberts has one of the most famous smiles in the world and has been named the most beautiful woman in the world FIVE times by People magazine.
But, like everyone else, actress Erin Brockovich evolved into the Pretty Woman she is today, as back in school, Julia was gap-toothed and wore glasses.
She attributes her glowing skin at 54 to sunscreen and hydration.
“As a responsible parent with three kids who love the outdoors, I am totally reliant on good sunscreen,” she told People in 2017.
It seems that 59-year-old Demi Moore has not aged a single day over the years.
But before she became famous, the actress was cross-eyed and went under the knife at a very young age to fix it.
In addition, Demi insists that her radiant and youthful complexion depends on flawless skin care.
In 2019, she told Gwyneth Paltrow, “I think the most important thing for me is that less is more, as it’s much easier to maintain a routine if we keep it simple, so it’s doable.”
Justin Timberlake rose to fame as a child in the 90s at The Mickey Mouse Club with Christina Aguilera and Britney Spears.
He then went on to achieve worldwide success with N*Sync, but he looked very different than he does now, with bleached blond hair styled in curls.
Now a movie star and global singer, 41-year-old Justin has aged like fine wine.
He is rarely seen without a smart suit, and his facial hair is always impeccably styled.
Despite his nerdy glasses, Joe Manganiello always looked camera-ready at school and was an athletic kid.
The Magic Mike star has captained his football, basketball and volleyball teams and has even played at the collegiate level in all three sports.
But he didn’t look like the Adonis he is now until he started acting in films and on television.
He and his wife Sofia Vergara are a beautiful couple!
Chris Pratt blew the world away when he showed off his abs for Guardians of the Galaxy back in 2014.
He managed to lose more than 4th place in just six months thanks to “three or four hours a day of consistent, back-breaking hard work.”
Chris, 42, also gave up beer for six months and worked out with personal trainer Daffy Gaver and nutritionist Phil Goglia, who increased their calorie intake to 4,000 calories a day and added plenty of water.
“I peed all day, every day. That part was a nightmare,” Chris said.
Chris’ workouts included P90X sessions, running, swimming, boxing, kickboxing and even triathlon.
And he lost a lot of weight after his lead role in the Jurassic World movies.
